See a gynecologist: There are several causes of vaginal infections that can produce a malodorous discharge.

Try women's health assoc in corbin or cathleen suto in williamsburg. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a poor healed scar after my delivery. Nine years since then &i suffer from pain durin sex. The cut is on the side of opening. Could vagisil help?

Probably not: Vagisil is unlikely to provide relief. It sounds as if you have an unstable scar. Vagisil could even slow healing. I would recommend twice a day sitz baths. Plastic surgeons differ in their recommendations for wound healing creams such as silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) or copper containing solutions. I would refrain from sex until healed for 3-6 weeks. If the pain persists scar revisionist be necessary. ...Read more
